MLS Game Summary - Philadelphia at New York



(Saturday, July 21, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: New York 2, Philadelphia 0

Harrison, NJ (Sports Network) - Kenny Cooper ended a seven-game scoreless run with two goals, and Red Bull New York defeated the Philadelphia Union, 2-0, on Saturday afternoon at Red Bull Arena.

Cooper scored 11 goals in his first 13 matches this season, but failed to get a single goal over his next seven MLS games. He last scored on May 23 against Chivas USA.

New York (11-5-5) remained unbeaten at home this season with its seven win in 10 matches at RBA, and moved into first place in the Eastern Conference.

Philadelphia (6-10-2) had its three-fixture win streak snapped, as it remained winless in three all-time visits up I-95 to the Red Bulls' new stadium.

Cooper was dangerous early as New York controlled the first half, but two good chances were saved by Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath.

Josue Martinez had the lone good chance of the first half for Philadelphia in the 40th minute but, after a through ball from Michael Farfan sent him behind New York's defense, Red Bulls goalie Bill Gaudette made a good save.

Cooper ended his drought in the 43rd minute, as he ran onto a left-wing cross from Connor Lade and turned a header inside the right post to leave MacMath no chance.

New York doubled its lead after halftime on an almost identical goal, this one off a left-wing cross from Thierry Henry. Cooper got behind two Union players, then directed a header inside the left post in the 58th minute.

Cooper, who has three more goals than Henry, is second in the league behind San Jose forward Chris Wondolowski. Gaudette, recently acquired by the Red Bulls, earned his second straight shutout.

New York surpassed last year's win total with its 11th victory this season and will visit the Montreal Impact after the All-Star game for its next match July 28. Philadelphia will try to rebound July 29 at the New England Revolution.
